Book News: Kirsty Eagar's Raw Blue in the UK!

If there's one book that my fellow bloggers sing the merits of over and over and over again, it's Raw Blue by Kirsty Eager.  Until now, Raw Blue has only been available to buy on import from Australia, but now, thanks to Catnip Publishing, it's coming to the UK!

Will you be reading Raw Blue when it releases in the UK? If you've already read this one, let me know what you thought of it. Is it as good as I've been hearing?

Raw Blue by Kirsty Eagar releases August 1st 2012 from Catnip Publishing.

Take a look at the UK cover below!




Carly has dropped out of uni to spend her days surfing and her nights working as a cook in a Manly café. Surfing is the one thing she loves doing … and the only thing that helps her stop thinking about what happened two years ago at schoolies week.

And then Carly meets Ryan, a local at the break, fresh out of jail. When Ryan learns the truth, Carly has to decide. Will she let the past bury her? Or can she let go of her anger and shame, and find the courage to be happy?

  9. I've read it, it's intense, emotional and heart breakingly amazing. Raw Blue is one of my all time favourite Aussie YA books so it's great to see it available finally in the UK.

  13. Ohhh, these are the times when I wish these epic books would be released in Canada too! It sounds like such an awesome story, and I LOVE surfer books -- they always makes me wish I lived by the ocean or something so I could learn :') And the UK cover looks absolutely gorgeous too!

    Thanks so much for sharing, Leanna! Maybe I can import this one from The Book Depository? *runs and checks* x) <3

  16. Oh, you have to read this! One of my all time fave YAs. I managed to snaffle an Australian copy before I moved back to the UK, but the UK cover is so much better!
